Chloé Sustainability & Equality Program | Chloé US official site

Women forward.
For a fairer future.
This is our purpose guiding all we do.

The legacy of our founder, Gaby Aghion, and her forward vision of femininity continues to inspire our long-term commitment to support women’s advancement, rebalance gender-based inequalities and promote inclusivity. The ultimate goal: creating beautiful products with meaningful impact.

Our plan is ambitious; and our aim is to extend it to every level, and every individual, within our sourcing and supply chain, our activities and our communities. With women as change agents, inspiring and engaging us, we will reinforce our commitment to bring positive impact to people and the planet.

We have decided to transform our operations and shift our mindset through efforts in everyday practices. We want to improve social and environmental sustainability with greater transparency and accountability. As noted below, this section will be regularly updated with our progress.

While we are aware change does not happen overnight, we are committed to this exciting journey. We are ready to act for a fairer and more sustainable future together.

fair & equal opportunities

Chloé continues to be an employer that promotes equal opportunities. We want to advance gender equality and inclusion throughout the workplace, while supporting and inspiring individuals.

We are proud that women currently make up 80% of our team at our headquarters in Paris, and 83% of Chloé worldwide.
Seventy percent of top management positions worldwide are also held by women.

We aim to foster a workplace where people of every gender, of every ethnicity, social background, sexual orientation, age or disability – visible or invisible – feel welcomed and valued.

fair sourcing

We also intend to become a force for positive change beyond the Chloé workplace. This includes promoting gender equality and fair trade, and furthering social and environmental sustainability practices through several initiatives.

World Fair Trade Organization

The World Fair Trade Organization is a global community of social enterprises that fully practice fair trade. Its guarantee system is the only international verification model focused on social enterprises that put the interests of people and the planet first.

Following a partnership signed with WFTO in September 2020, Chloé will debut its first fair-trade luxury collections in March 2021 that will thus be recognized as ethically produced and environmentally responsible. Over time, we will increase the quantity of fair-trade items in our collections, maintaining the highest luxury quality.

This partnership has several long-term objectives:
Chloé will provide key organizational information to the fair-trade movement.
Additionally, Chloé will encourage more suppliers to make the wellbeing of people and the planet a fundamental part of their strategy, thus enhancing their sustainability practices in order to become verified by the World Fair Trade Organization.
The World Fair Trade Organization will provide access to its network of verified producers and ensure compliance through its guarantee system.

positive impact on communities

Chloé aims to become a social innovator. Our first priority: creating more economic opportunities, and reducing inequalities for girls and women mainly through education.

UNICEF PARTNERSHIP

Young girls are three times more likely than young boys to be out of school. Women with secondary education may, however, expect to earn twice as much as those with no education.
In 2019, we initiated GIRLS FORWARD, a three-year partnership with UNICEF to provide girls with skills to advance in the workplace through education, entrepreneurship and training programs in five countries: Bolivia, Jordan, Morocco, Senegal and Tajikistan.

Chloé has already raised € 668,000 for the GIRLS FORWARD initiative to date and will continue to collect funds to support UNICEF gender equality programs.

impact on the planet

Chloé seeks to promote environmentally responsible business practices. To this end, the company is working to reduce its environmental impact to minimum levels.

Chloé is proud to be part of The Fashion Pact that unites 60+ global leading companies from the fashion and textile industry committing to a common core of ambitious quantified objectives focusing on 3 themes: climate, biodiversity and oceans.

In 2019, we conducted a complete evaluation of our environmental footprint, using the Environmental Profit & Loss methodology created by Kering.

Through the E P&L, we identified materials including organic cotton, organic silk, conscious denim and recycled material that provide more sustainable options and we are currently working to integrate and increase the use of these materials in our collections.
As an example in point, a Chloé T-shirt made with our organic cotton fabric allows us to reduce our Green House Gas (GHG) emissions by 38% compared to those emitted by a T-shirt produced with traditional cotton, while also reducing the use of pesticides.
These combined efforts will allow us to reduce our global GHG footprint in line with our target of a 25% reduction by 2025.

Currently, we already offset 100% of our direct GHG emissions, and our headquarters in Paris operates on 100% on renewable energy.
By 2025, we plan to offset 100% of GHG emissions across our supply chain – spanning raw material production to retail.

PACKAGING

We only use paper that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

We have created a roadmap to eliminate the use of non-essential plastic in our supply chain, and we are planning to switch to low environmental impact hangers and polybags by the end of 2021.

By 2025, we aim to further reduce packaging waste by 25% with a focus on our logistics.

ANIMAL WELFARE POLICY

We no longer use fur, angora, exotic animal skins or hair.
We have already banned fur from our collections in 2018, and the use of exotic skins in 2019.
By 2025, all the wool material used in Chloé collections will be certified by the Responsible Wool Standard.

LEATHER WORKING GROUP

Since 2017, Chloe has been a member of the Leather Working Group (LWG), a not-for-profit multi-stakeholder initiative whose audit protocols are designed to certify leather manufacturers according to their environmental compliance and performance. Currently, 75% of our skins used for manufacturing leather goods are certified by the LWG. Our goal is to exceed 90% by 2025 for all product categories.
Chloé is also a proud member of the LWG sub-group actively working to improve animal welfare in the supply chain.

WASTE

We are committed not to destroy any finished products suitable for sale, and for raw materials, we will be ready by 2025.
We reuse, recycle and donate through various and reliable channels instead.

SHOWS

We carefully assess the global impact of our shows in collaboration with the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode which is currently implementing an impact measurement tool as well as an eco-design tool with the support of PWC. Our goal is to reduce our impact by 30% by 2025.

SEASONS

In May 2020, Chloé signed a petition spearheaded by designer Dries Van Noten for a more sustainable fashion calendar. Since then, we have reduced the size of our collections and shifted the delivery cadence to better align with the seasons.
